Passage: Exodus 1:1-7
Service Type:

Sermon 1 in Series

Exodus 1:1-7
These are the names of the sons of Israel who came to Egypt with Jacob, each with his household: Reuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah, Issachar, Zebulun, and Benjamin, Dan and Naphtali, Gad and Asher. All the descendants of Jacob were seventy persons; Joseph was already in Egypt. Then Joseph died, and all his brothers and all that generation. But the people of Israel were fruitful and increased greatly; they multiplied and grew exceedingly strong, so that the land was filled with them.

DEEP SHEET: Sermon Study Questions
1.  What comes to your mind when you think of Exodus? Why is this book so important for our understanding of the whole Bible?
2.  How does Exodus function as a sequel to Genesis? Why has it been considered the heart of the Pentateuch?
3.  Why did God bring his people into Egypt? How does this highlight the many unseen layers of his divine plan?
4.  How does Joseph’s death serve as a reality check? In what way does it move the spotlight off of man and onto God?
5.  What previous portions of Scripture are echoed in v. 7? What does this multiplication of the Israelites tell us about the nature and character of God?
